Balys and Vanda Sruogos House-Museum

B. Sruogos g. 21, Kaunas

A wooden, modernist-style house was designed by architect Vladimiras Zubovas in 1936. The house was owned by a famous Lithuanian poet, playwright Balys Sruoga and a historian Vanda Sruogienė. At first house was built in Žemaitija, in the estate of V. Sruogienė's father Kazimieras Daugirdas. However, the parts of the dismantled house were brought to Kaunas by railway. The construction was finished being assembled in 1938 and Sruogos family moved in. The building had a wooden single-storey cottage with a loft, porch and a balcony above it. 

A memorial museum was established at the house in 1966 and became a branch of Maironis Lithuanian Literature Museum since 1993. After the death of Vanda Daugirdaitė-Sruogienė, the museum was called the home-museum of Balys and Vanda Sruogos in 1998.
